Three people were killed in a shooting in the Great Hills neighborhood of Austin on Sunday, police said.

Austin police said that while the suspect remains at large, the shooting appears to be a "domestic situation" and poses no risk to the general public. However, the police did urge residents to shelter in place.

Interim Austin Police Chief Joe Chacon told reporters the three victims were two women and a man.

"Obviously this is a tragedy. We have people who have lost their lives here," Chacon said, according to the Austin American-Statesman. "We'll do our best ... to get this person in custody ... and hopefully with no more loss of life."

It was the second shooting with multiple fatalities in the U.S. on Sunday.
